I'm NED!

edited March 2014 in Colorectal Cancer #1
Thank all of you for your prayers and support. In Nov. I had my colon resection, and then last month took the second of two PET scans and I just heard from the ONC that no cancer showed for a second time and that I'm NED. Yippee! Since I refuse to dance naked alone, how about a Happy Naked Conga Line. Never mind! Now that I think about it, that's not such a good idea!

I wonder if anyone on the board would want to take the Michael Jackson song "I'm Bad" and rewrite it to "I'm NED." That would be cool. It could have its world premiere at Colonpalooza.

My good news is tempered unfortunately by the untimely death of my sister in law in Kansas. She developed brain cancer and it was only a week from discovery to passing. Never heard of anything like it. It was a glioblastoma.

And now I'm going to go celebrate! At arm's length, of course!

    I love hearing stories about becoming NED because I know my day is coming too!!

    I am still sorry for your family and your sister in law. I live in Kansas and Lawrence is only 30 miles from me. Just reminds us that life is short and we need to live it fully.

    Hope your band friend will write the new lyrics, that would be so neat. It would become the official anthem of the Semicolon Society! Thanks for the dance!
